Plaster-boarding tips between floors


New Member
I’m new to the forum and have a question for which I’ve been unable to find an answer.
I’m currently at the stage where I’m beginning to board between the 1st floor and ground floor of my home renovation and have a question about overlapping boards.The area in question is the landing. See pic below.
Should the vertical board overlap the horizontal board on the ceiling or vice versa?

thank you.

Board ceiling to the edge. Board up to ceiling after.. Is that what you are asking otherwise I'm with that door knob trump. Confused.

No difference if you do it the way other way though and wall first. Join will be in the same place
